Iona Construction ?

Recommended Posts

Borrowed from elsewhere, and obviously filmed a while ago, but a video of the Skydome lift from the crane company, Liebherr.

Photo found from a visitor to the shipyard (Williemkuperus).  Stern has had some paint done, and IONA clearly visible.

Odyssey of the Seas mega block floated out to the harbour, and Iona now floating in the dock.  Ship should me moved towards the doors before draining the dock again. Photos from Jeroen van Roijen.

Slight correction, close up photo shows the dry dock partition still in place.  Perhaps they need to drain, move the hull support blocks to suit Iona, then flood and move.  All guess work. (Photo from Jeroen van Roijen)

Now a short 4K video looking into the shed.

 

 


That’s brilliant thanks. Suite for maiden clearly identified although apparent overhang from above may provide unwanted shade. Probably doesn’t matter for Norway though! 😉

Which one have you got left or right? We have the one on the right the Timor Suite, cant see the overhang being a problem at least its private.

I was thinking you'd both come to a concensus.Now's the time to get something done about it.While it's still being built.

A couple of photos from a visitor to the yard yesterday.  The masking on the stern has been removed, and it also appears that the dry dock separator has been removed.  Possibly the dock will be flooded this week and Iona moved towards the doors.

Meyer Werft have stated in a post relating to Odyssey of the Seas, that Iona is expected to leave the dry dock mid February 2020, for the 'float out'.

No idea of Ems conveyance yet, but as I will be on board Britannia early April next year, will probably be then so I miss the spectacular voyage down the river.
